In this article, we will show you how to put a stop loss in IQ Option.
Step 1: Log into your account and click on the “trade” button.
When you are setting up a stop-loss, you will need to log into your account and click on the “trade” button. This will bring up a new window where you can enter the details of your trade.
Step 2: Choose the asset you would like to trade.
When trading options, it is important to choose the asset you would like to trade. This is because different assets have different underlying prices and therefore offer different potential rewards and risks. For example, if you are trading options on stocks, you would want to trade options on stocks with a high underlying value. Conversely, if you are trading options on bonds, you would want to trade options on bonds with a low underlying value.
Step 3: Select the “put” or “call” option.
When you are considering whether to put in or call a position in an options trade, there are a few things to consider. The first is the underlying asset. If you are buying calls on a stock, for example, you would want to consider the current price of the stock and whether or not it has reached a support or resistance level. If the stock has hit a support level, it may be a good time to put in a buy order. However, if the stock has hit a resistance level, it may be a good time to call your buy order and wait for it to reach the lower price before putting in the buy order.
The second consideration is the strike price. If you are buying calls, you want to make the strike price as low as possible. This is because you are hoping the stock will go down so that the call option will be worth more when it is exercised. Conversely, if you are selling calls, you want to make the strike price as high as possible. This is because you are hoping the stock will go up so that the call option will be worth less when it is exercised. The third consideration is the expiration date. If you are buying calls, you want to make sure the expiration date is close enough to the current price of the stock so that you can sell it if the stock goes down. However, if you are selling calls, you want to make sure the expiration date is far enough in the future so that you can hold
Step 4: Select the amount you would like to invest.
When setting stop-losses, it is important to consider the amount of money you are risking. This process is typically done by dividing your total investment amount by the stop-loss price. For example, if you are investing $10,000 and want to set a stop-loss at $5,000, your stop-loss would be set at $2,500.
Step 5: Select the expiration time.
When setting a stop-loss in an option, it is important to select the expiration time so that you have a clear understanding of when the option will expire. Most exchanges allow for options to expire at any time between two days and a month from the date of purchase.
Step 6: Enter your stop loss amount.
When you are trading options, it is important to have a stop-loss in place. This is a set amount of money that you will sell your option if the price falls below this point. By having a stop-loss in place, you can ensure that you always have a plan for exiting a trade if it goes wrong.
Step 7: Click on “place trade.”
When you place a trade in an option, you set a stop-loss. This is the point at which you say “no more” – you’re not going to buy any more shares of this stock at this price. If the stock price falls below your stop-loss, you’ll automatically sell your shares and pocket the money you made.
